In Fall 2020, students will log into Zoom for live synchronous instruction with teachers and classmates. They will also use Canvas, a Learning Management System, that serves as a virtual classroom or hub, holding all class assignments, activities, quizzes, tests, and more. Students and teachers can also communicate with each other via Canvas. We hope that these two tools will offer teachers, students and parents a streamlined approach to teaching and learning this fall.
